Matt Landreman
Associate Research Scientist
(Deputy Director)

Matt Landreman’s research explores confinement and transport in shaped magnetic fields, especially those with hidden symmetry, and the control of this shaping with electromagnetic coils. Of particular interest is the translation of equations and insights from physics into numerical codes for practical computation. Some examples of this work…
